2013 Pinot Noir Bannockburn

The nose leads with cinnamon, vanilla and more red fruits than the typical dark cherry from this warmer 2013 vintage. A soft and comforting mouthfeel that is broad and expansive. Being a blend of our three Bannockburn vineyards, this contributes various layers of generous ripe fruits and creamy textural elements. The wine has a pleasant rusticity to the structure adding complexity and depth. Hints of liquorice on the long enveloping finish.

 Decanter, Peter McCombie, June 2015 

Hedonistic Pinot nose: layers of floral spice, lovely, quite ripe fruit, something herbal and savoury, too; supple, with dark fruit flavours to the fore. Will reward cellaring. Drink 2015-2022. 94 points.

Wine Spectator, MaryAnn Worobiec, Published 2015

Supple wild berry, cherry and plum favours are both powerful and delicate, with details of Earl Grey tea, white pepper, anise and crushed rock. Expansive and expressive, the finish sails on and on, with satiny tannins that never get in the way. Drink now through 2030. 95 Points.
